are about 4 million Freemasons under more than 100 "regular" Grand
Lodges worldwide. Membership of the Craft is open to every respectable
man who believes in his personal Supreme Being - usually known in
Masonic terms as the Great Architect of the Universe, Grand Geometrician
of the Universe or Most High. These descriptive names show the
importance the Freemason places on his Supreme Being in the order of
things in Life.
If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Freemason, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org giving a phone number on which you would be happy to receive a call.
Someone will get in touch with you to have a chat about Becoming a Freemason and answer any questions you may have. This could take place via e-mail if preferred.
If you are still interested, a private meeting would be arranged.
Should you then wish to take things further, someone else will also wish to meet you and they would ultimately be your supporters in your application. One of these meetings would probably be at your home, and they may wish to speak to some friends or family members as well. There is nothing to be concerned about, these meetings are to help your sponsors get to know you and feel able to propose you with confidence. It will allow you to get to know them too!
They then arrange an interview with senior members of the Lodge who will ask you probably much the same questions. All being well, your name will go before the brethren at the next Lodge meeting for your candidature to be approved.
If approved, a slot will be found in the programme for your initiation ceremony. Your supporters will explain what is involved and reassure you if you have heard any alarming reports as to what that may entail. Remember, Freemasonry is about brotherly love, truth, and relief.
